Ciaran has been running the garden centre and taken creative control since Spring of 2014, creating plant displays, maintaining plants and maintaining the grounds, but not being able to do this without his two much adored team members, Martin and Mary. Ciaran has special areas of interest these being Interior plants, Herbaceous Perennials and Ornamental Grasses. He’s also an amazing buyer!

In what was only to be a 2 week work placement, Mary whom studied Landscape Design at BFEI was quickly recruited to the team at the demand of Ciaran. She worked in nursing for many years before trying her hands at the world of design and plants receiving a HND through BFEI. She was recruited at great speed and welcomed to the team as a part time team member in Spring 2016. Mary is lover of Seasonal Bedding, Potted Containers and Herbaceous Perennials but she is also partial to the odd climber on a wall!
History of Doyles Nursery & Garden Centre
Established in 1963, Doyle’s Nursery was set up by John Doyle Snr. as a specialist rose and tree nursery. After building a reputation for the supply of quality plants to the landscape trade, he went on to win numerous RHS awards of merit for his quality roses.
John Doyle Junior joined the business in the 1980’s and developed the company further by introducing the supply of an additional range of quality plants from Europe. Following the premature death of John Doyle Junior, the nursery closed for a number of years.
John’s only son, Sean Doyle, decided to reopen the nursery in 2011 on the former site and now prides itself on its wide range of plants, providing for only the highest quality, presentation and standard. We are renowned for our friendly and inspirational retail experience.
